New Years Celebrations for Families

Families stepping out to see the NYE fireworks

NYE for Families

NYE is about party party party and sometimes the focus of that is on the above 18 years olds.  But we've also found some venues and NYE events that welcome families with under 18 year olds.

So we've got some great options in Sydney and Perth so far but we are sure that as more events are announced we'll find more in the hot spots of Brissy and Melbourne.

Make sure you checkout the NYE for Families updates.

Hump Day New Year's Eve

Hump day NYE in 2014. Peace Out.

We love Hump Day New Years!

Hump Day. Wednesday is traditionally known as Hump Day. It gets that nickname from being in the middle of the working week. Get up over the hump and the rest of the week slides into the fun of the weekend.  This year New Year's Eve is on a Wednesday. So it's Hump Day NYE. The awesomeness of this is that New Years Day is a Thursday & that is a public holiday. Hence there is just one more day until the weekend. And hey ... Maybe you can arrange to take that day off and you will have on your sweet little hands a super long weekend... And let's face it you deserve a super long weekend to see out the old year and welcome in the new one! So now you just need to think thru your plans of what you are going to do for Hump Day NYE! We've got all the best ideas and parties and with more details coming every day it's mint to checkout it all out.  There is no many fab events for this New Years.

Daylight Savings and what it means for New Years Eve

What timezone New Year's Eve are you in?

WOW... in some states of Australia we just lost 1 hour as the clocks went forward to make way for Summer Time or Daylight Savings.  Now that is not a bad thing as it gives us one hour more of sunlight in the states and cities where it is applicable.  But it can be confusing as who and which states are doing what?

Well here it is... Victoria, New South Wales, ACT, South Australia and Tasmania are all Summer Timers or Daylight Savers!  That means that these states and the cities of Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Hobart and Adelaide have all moved their clocks one hour forward.   

Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia don't worry about Daylight Savings and figure they get enough sunshine!
So that now means in terms of New Years Eve that the sequence of NYE in Australia will be ...

The sequence of party towns and fireworks displays in Australia will be ...

At 12 Midnight on the 31st December 2014
- Melbourne and all the towns of Victoria
- Hobart and all the towns of Tasmania
- Sydney and all the towns of NSW
- Canberra and all the towns of ACT

Then 30 minutes later ...
- Adelaide and all the towns of South Australia

Then 30 minutes later ...  (1 hour after the rest of the Eastern states)
- Brisbane, the Gold Coast and all the towns of Queensland

Then another 30 minutes  (So 1 hour after South Australia)
- Darwin, Alice Springs and the towns of Northern Territory

And finally another 90 minutes ... (So 3 hrs after Sydney and Melbourne etc)
- Perth and the towns of Western Australia

Simple really ...  Who said daylight saving was confusing?
I reckon we can still get to all the NYE parties in Oz in time ....   Let's celebrate!
